Farewell Letter from the Chairman


…Giorgino Macalino

y last Chairman letter is bittersweet. When I began my term in January our professional and personal lives were completely different and full of so much activity and hope. Then as we all know too well, a pandemic hit and turned everything upside down. We all had to change and adapt in ways that were unfamiliar and even uncomfortable at times. The human spirit is resilient and the one silver lining in this unimaginable year is how people came together to make things work in our new normal and to do good. The NYSCC Chapter exemplified this character time and time again. We started the year strong with popular in-person events including ones on Indie 360 and the FDA Monograph. For the first time, NYSCC had a presence at the CEW Beauty Awards Demo at the end of February in support of our sponsorship of the CEW Supplier’s Award for Ingredients & Formulation. Then in March, when we went into lockdown, the At Home Live Series was launched rapidly and every month we were able to offer the beauty and personal care industry relevant and important information and content to keep their businesses and professional development moving forward. We also launched “Intensive” educational weeks of programming on Skin Microbiome, Sunscreen, and Color. Of course, our largest event, Suppliers’ Day, also had to be reimagined and reinvented to take place virtually as well as be relevant and engaging. Suppliers’ Day at Home Live Week of Beauty succeeded in that we had solid virtual attendance, retention, and conversion rates for the event. We also were pleased by the strong support from our industry partners and association peers. At the beginning of the year, Suppliers’ Day was also named one of the Fastest 50 Growing Tradeshows in North America. This designation required providing details on a number of exhibitors/ attendees as well as the growth in size. We are optimistic that in 2021 we will be able to celebrate this honor with fellow Fastest 50 tradeshows at the postponed awards ceremony in Las Vegas. Besides offering non-stop educational programs, I am also proud of the new initiatives that were launched that showcased our diversity, heart, and compassion. In partnership with the LISCC Chapter we created an awareness video to celebrate Pride Month in June. NYSCC also distributed FDA approved hand sanitizers to frontline workers throughout New York and New Jersey. We connected with the new professionals entering the industry through our Professional Development Webinar launched by the mentoring committee, the Future Chemists Workshop virtual component during Suppliers’ Day, and the upcoming Mentor Mentee virtual mixer. In the midst of this roller coaster year, we also redesigned the Chapter website to add more visually appealing and relevant information and resources. This year it truly took a village, and I am indebted to Maria Mo for leading the Program Committee in creating systems that supported our quickly-launched webinar programs. My appreciation also extends to all the event chairs who went above and beyond in recruiting speakers from all over the country and the globe to bring a world-class education experience to our members. My sincere gratitude goes to the following people whose unique skills and support I relied heavily on during my tenure starting with Cathy Piterski, Giorgio Dell’Aqua, Roger McMullen, Steve Herman, Erin Layton, Annie Scully, and Jane McDermott. A million thanks go out to our tireless and brilliant Executive Board: Susanna Fernandes, Stephen Carter, Mohamed Abdulla, Leor Fay Tal, and Sonia Dawson, my trusted advisor and predecessor. In closing, I truly think that this Chapter has the most enthusiastic, dedicated, and supportive members and am grateful for you logging on and spending so much time virtually with us this year! Thank you for carrying us through this new normal stronger than ever. Happy and safe Holidays to all our members and their families. I look forward to an even brighter 2021.

Letter from the 2021 Chair

…Susanna Fernandes

am honored and excited to be the incoming Chair for 2021. I would not be starting my tenure on such solid ground, after such a tumultuous year, without the vision, drive, commitment, and adaptability of this year’s Chairman, Giorgino Macalino. Thank you, Gino, I look forward to continuing working with you as our advisor. I am also grateful for my fellow board members this year as well as all our amazing committee members, program chairs and countless volunteers who contributed to the innovative new programs and initiatives that we launched. You can read all about them in Gino’s Chairman letter and throughout this special issue of Cosmetiscope. Looking optimistically forward, our theme for 2021 will be Embracing Beauty—A Celebration of What We Create. This theme will be woven throughout all our programming and highlight our industry’s inclusivity and bring us together after a year of social distancing. We will begin the New Year strong with an important webinar on Challenges of Formulating, led by Howard Epstein. The board has also decided to hold our first three months of programs virtually. In addition, I am excited to announce that our At Home Live Series will be a permanent monthly fixture to our events calendar. This is just the beginning of what we have planned for next year. Stay tuned for exciting new initiatives designed exclusively for your benefit and the growth of the cosmetic community. As you know, Suppliers’ Day has become the main event in North America for formulation and ingredients innovations and discovery. We will work hard to hold a compliant in-person event at the Javits Center in May and will also blend in a virtual component to ensure that no one misses out on participating in this important event. Thank you for your support and trust in me as your new Chair. Happy, Healthy Holidays to you, your families, and loved ones. I look forward to a New Year filled with hope and my sincere wish is to “see” you safely soon.

he NYSCC.org website is the face of the organization and is the go-to destination for tens of thousands of people every single week. The pivot from in-person to online events, courses, and educational sessions came right in the midst of our website redesign and relaunch. Fortunately, our organization had the NYSCC Board to rely on to provide guidance, define goals, and create a clear path for success. In 2020, we created a new website experience with a stunning new design, an engaging layout, and smart use of cutting-edge technology. Starting with a deep-dive into the content audit and information architecture, the Executive Committee clearly outlined objectives for the organization and provided a strong focus on the need for the website to provide top-tier educational seminars as well as be a resource for the Mentor/Mentee program in addition to the multitude of members. A successful website redesign and launch takes into account the front-end visuals and layouts (which are seen by the website visitors) but also builds a robust data-management system which is used to improve search engine optimization, site speed, and hundreds of other factors that go into delivering a top-notch website experience. The website team creatively crafted both the front-end and back-end platforms, which delivered a website nimble enough to be viewed on any small device, but robust enough to deliver the virtual Suppliers’ Day event attended by tens of thousands of people from around the globe.

NYSCC Supports Black Lives Matters

he NYSCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science education. Diversity is part of our core. Our current executive board, and past executive boards, have chosen eligible leadership based on the volunteers best suited for the role, regardless of gender identity, physical ability, religion, age, race, or culture. While this may be true, our organization believes we can do more and take actions to support the communities of our executive leadership team, board members, and membershipat-large. We support the efforts to unify for social and civil equality in society while recognizing we still have challenges to overcome. As America is one of the most diverse countries in the world, it is important to acknowledge our history and the challenges many Americans still face in the pursuit of inclusion and diversity. The NYSCC proudly acknowledges that BLACK LIVES MATTER. This is, of course, not to say other lives do not matter. This is to say we stand with and support the black community in the fight against racial injustices. Systemic racism is a real issue and we realize silence and inaction are damaging. To ignore systemic racism and avoid having conversations about it is the exact fuel that keeps racism alive. At NYSCC, we are proud of our diversity and know that we cannot rest until every member of our organization feels empowered to reach their full professional potential regardless of their circumstance. It is our goal to listen and hear all the voices of our membership and to weave equity and inclusion into the fabric of every NYSCC initiative, committee, program, and event.


NYSCC and LISCC Celebrate Pride Month

une is Pride Month and this year commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots that occurred in June of 1969 after the police raid of the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City. It celebrates the diversity of the LGBT+ community and promotes awareness and acceptance. The NYSCC and LISCC joined forces together this year to support the LGBT+ community and celebrate inclusiveness. The NYSCC and LISCC are proud to be part of an industry that celebrates diversity on so many levels. We will continue to choose our leadership based on the person best suited for the role, regardless of gender identity, ability, religion, age, or culture. In addition, the many brands within the beauty/personal care arena have long included exposure and championed the LGBTQ+ community in their advertising, marketing, and social communications.
